Tala Reveal! Yeah for change!!!!

It is amazing how a little paint and fresh art makes such a transformation in a space! This past weekend, my Hus and I revamped my hair studio! I have been living out my dream for 3 years now, and was excited to switch up the look a bit. I landed on a rich navy/grey color on the walls and fresh art! Here is the space!  Check out here for how my space used to look! 

I used acrylic paint for these two prints. The two quotes that I used were, "Wear love everywhere you go. Colossians 3:14" and "Out of your hair, your style speaks". 

I am still obsessed with my penny wall fire place! It is so beautiful! 

I hung 4 ikea frames with watercolor paintings in them. My Hus screwed in brass toned L-brackets in the corners. I love this look on frames! 

I hand painted, "Your hair is a voice." on the wall above the window!

We moved the TALA letters so that you see them right when you walk into the studio from outside!

I love these IKEA shelves for my retail. We added in a third one for more storage.

Praise for plants!

New magazine rack on the beverage cart.

I heart my new makeup line! I have CC Cream in the studio right now! The rest of the makeup will be here within a week or so! Can not WAIT! mineral based/ gluten free/ all natural.

Pretty roses in a Anthro vase at my station.

I have some DoTerra oils in the studio right now if you are interested!

Pretty bowls for my pin curls and bobby pins.

I am thinking that I want to copper leaf this mirror? Thoughts?

Love the vintage look of this light!

added another shelf above the drinks to declutter the space a bit.

This barndoor is the coolest! 

Pretty sure that towel warmers are a must in a salon!

I have been diffusing Elevation joyful blend everyday in the studio! It is my favorite scent ever!

Best polish I have ever used!!!!!

I swear that this bench was made for my space!!!!

hooks for purses and such.

What do you think? Do you likey? I am in love……… Tis the season. Now get your butt into my studio!

Every week, I try and share with you a hair related post on Wednesdays, called LOCK LOVE WEDNESDAY. I always have so many ideas brewing in my head, or am dreaming of trends and colors. I love showing you Before + Afters from the studio or showing off tips and tools for you! 

This past week, I had the opportunity to attend a Salon Centric Hair Show in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin with 6 of my girlfriends in the industry. IT WAS AMAZE, to say the least. Lots of education and inspiration, which is always the perfect way to come home. I learned some wonderful techniques and concepts that I am pumped to use at Tala!

Obsessed with this look for my clients that love something edgy and different……

Jen Planck is a wonderful educator and communicator! Love this quote……

Color class was a blast…….

My ladies…….. I love my studio, but man, I miss working with my buddies. 
So great just connecting with people that have the same passions as you.

Love the softer look of color right now for hair.

 I have super exciting news!!!!!!! After lots of research on choosing the perfect line, Tala is now carrying a MAKEUP line!!!!!!!!!!! I am sooooooo excited! I have decided to carry Mirabella Beauty cosmetics! It is amazing, to say the least!!!!!! Paraben free. Gluten free. mineral based….all things that are important to me. I love this California-based company and am pumped. I will have the line in the studio within the next 2 weeks!!!! I am going to announce soon a Open House date for y'all to come and check it out! I have the CC Cream already in the salon. CC stands for Color Corrector. It has SPF 20, and feels light like a tinted moisturizer. YEAH!!!!! Can you tell I am excited?!

 I am being bold and brave and showing you a before + after of me without makeup and with Mirabella Makeup!!!!!!!  I took this yesterday, no filter, just me……(only took 5 minutes to apply) I am so excited to have a line that I am passionate about and believe in! I would love to educate you and do your makeup anytime! I have some hair before and afters below…...
 I got back Monday night, and worked a long day yesterday! I got to do some fun hair! I bayalogued Leah's hair. I love the dimension!!!!! We cut her hair a couple inches up too.

 This was Thea's 2nd time coloring her hair. I added in a natural blonde and brought up the length to more of bob. I curled her hair using a flat iron!

Lindsay has such a fun cut and rocks the ashy blonde look like nobody's biz. She is a babe!

Have you heard about the WET BRUSH? My word, this brush is amazing. I used it this weekend and knew you would want one too! I have a heck of a time combing my wet hair and my clients hair after shampooing. I don't know how they made this, but it makes it so easy to brush hair!!!! Halleju!

Everyone that knows me, knows that I wear headbands almost daily! I am now carrying the infamous Pink Pewter headbands that my girl, Carrie Underwood wears all the time! They are felt lined (so they don't hurt or slip) and gorg!

Also, Tala is open tomorrow from 12-6:30pm and I am running a 15% off retail all day! Stop in!

Happy LLW
